Countersniper system for urban warfare
Ákos Lédeczi, András Nádas, Péter Völgyesi, György Balogh, Branislav Kusy, János Sallai, Gábor Pap, Sebestyén Dóra, Károly Molnár, Miklós Maróti, Gyula Simon
Pages: 153-177
DOI: 10.1145/1105688.1105689
An ad-hoc wireless sensor network-based system is presented that detects and accurately locates shooters even in urban environments. The localization accuracy of the system in open terrain is competitive with that of existing centralized...

Energy-conserving data cache placement in sensor networks
K. Shashi Prabh, Tarek F. Abdelzaher
Pages: 178-203
DOI: 10.1145/1105688.1105690
Wireless sensor networks hold a very promising future. The nodes of wireless sensor networks (WSN) have a small energy supply and limited bandwidth available. Since radio communication is expensive in terms of energy consumption, the nodes typically...

Improving key predistribution with deployment knowledge in static sensor networks
Donggang Liu, Peng Ning
Pages: 204-239
DOI: 10.1145/1105688.1105691
Pairwise key establishment is a fundamental security service for sensor networks. However, establishing pairwise keys in sensor networks is a challenging problem, particularly due to the resource constraints on sensor nodes and the threat of node...

FAR: Face-aware routing for mobicast in large-scale sensor networks
Qingfeng Huang, Sangeeta Bhattacharya, Chenyang Lu, Gruia-Catalin Roman
Pages: 240-271
DOI: 10.1145/1105688.1105692
This article presents FAR, a Face-Aware Routing protocol for mobicast---a spatiotemporal variant of multicast tailored for sensor networks with environmental mobility. FAR features face-routing and timed-forwarding for delivering a message to a...

On the upper bound of α-lifetime for large sensor networks
Honghai Zhang, Jennifer C. Hou
Pages: 272-300
DOI: 10.1145/1105688.1105693
In this article, we explore the fundamental limits of sensor network lifetime that all algorithms can possibly achieve. Specifically, under the assumptions that nodes are deployed as a Poisson point process with density λ in a square region...

On the optimal distribution of sensors in a random field
Xin Zhang, Stephen B. Wicker
Pages: 301-306
DOI: 10.1145/1105688.1105694
This article considers the problem of distributing sensors to observe a random field while meeting a series of energy and coverage constraints. In the network under consideration, N identical sensors are to be distributed, with each sensor...
